Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is an involving tale about a group of motorists who become trapped in a New York tunnel under the Hudson River following a freak accident. Director Rob Cohen's classy contribution to the 1990s disaster movie resurgence is less reliant on slick visual effects than most, and Sylvester Stallone displays more vulnerability than expected as the determined leader of an escape party. Yet Cohen's orchestration of the requisite action scenes (including the early, eye-popping tunnel destruction) is impressive. Although by no means a genre classic, this provides enough solid entertainment to offset its overfamiliar storyline.
